I’m all for “biker chic” as you already know. Leather, or the animal friendly version “pleather”, can add just the extra punch an outfit needs. Plus it’s so warm which is much needed for the NYC winter. Here are my favorite ways to add (p)leather pieces into everyday outfits. There is just one word of caution; it may take a few tries before finding faux leather that looks more like real leather then it does plastic. Don’t give up because it’s out there. For example: Aqua, Michael Kors, J Brand, Calvin Klein, and Royal Underground all have great faux leather options for jackets, pants, and skirts. Oh and a side note: If you can pull off leather leggings, go for it. I’d have them in a millisecond if my thighs allowed!
